Some pieces make you insanely happy, even before you own them. When Who What Wear dropped their Fall 2017 Collection with Target I was instantly obsessed with this printed mini dress. I love, love, love dark florals, and for whatever reason, printed dresses always make me think about Sex and the City (my mental association game is random. Don’t judge me). The high-neck and ruffle detail really got me; I’m a total fan of anything that has a romantic, Victorian element to it. The print could easily over power but the length keeps it all in check.
This dress is very girlie, (ruffles? check! flowers? check!), but the color combination adds a sporty element to it, so if I wanted to be that girl and dress it down with a denim jacket and chucks, it would actually work. I decided to pair it with those Jeffrey Campbell leather booties that I posted about here because I didn’t want it to be too “pretty”.
I am thinking about wearing it with my white booties too for that whole mod look again. Kept the jewelry minimal because the dress makes a statement all on its own, and grabbed my Cynthia Rowley Hudson Satchel before I walked out the door.

I love the look of long-sleeve dresses and want more going out, party-esque pieces (maybe that’s the SATC connection???) so more dresses like this are at the top of my list.
